Supervision Steps

Please note: SAFCA approved supervisors who are still involved in Financial Counselling casework must also comply with the national rules and have supervision from another SAFCA approved supervisor. 

STEP 1 AGENCY RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Agency responsibilities are outlined in the Standards for Agencies guide page, which can be accessed on the FCA Toolkit.
  • Agencies must allow associate and full members access to professional supervision, as per the Standards.
     

STEP 2 MEMBER ASKS FOR SUPERVISION

  • A SAFCA Member (Associate or Full) asks you for professional supervision.
  • Check that you and that member both have your agencies’ support, if so proceed to Step 3.
     

 STEP 3 SET EXPECTATIONS         

  • Supervisor and supervisee meet and discuss the Supervision Framework.
  • Complete Form S1 SAFCA Professional Standards Requirements & Responsibilities
  • Complete Form 2 Supervision Agreement, which is revisited regularly.
     

 STEP 4 ONGOING SUPERVISION

  • Supervisor and supervisee meet regularly (face-to-face, Internet, telephone) and formally discuss cases, self-care, stress management, learning opportunities etc.
  • Complete FORM S3 Supervision Log.
     

STEP 5 WORKING TOWARDS LEVEL 2
